Elite Football Centre


Our Elite Development Centre is our top tier programme aiming to develop further gifted young footballers and aid them on their journey to participate in the sport at the highest level they can reach. Carrying with it a higher expectation of performance our coaching syllabus reimburses this with a set syllabus in cohesion with the Lincoln City Academy.


We will always strive to ensure enjoyment through our sessions but also provide the best environment for players to further develop, and opportunities if players show a clear gifted talent to progress further into our club structure.


Our Elite sessions are on Friday evening along with a structured games programme similar to the advanced centre's games programme, which still allows players to play grassroots football alongside the programme.


Fee: £25 per month direct debit. Annual Membership Fee: £10

Meet the Coaches

George Housham


I've loved training with the Lincoln City Foundation.  When I was in the Advanced group, I learnt about the importance of defending and it inspired me to work hard in the Elite Development Centre to become the best defender I can be. 

Meet our graduates who have progressed into the Academy


I did a year at the ADC and a year at the EDC. I really enjoyed both and was pushed by the high standard of coaching and other players

Hao Dinh

I learnt how to receive the ball and more skills to get past players and also how to not be scared.

Hao Minh

I learnt to keep the ball better and to make new friends from different places. I also learnt a solution to different cases in football.
